My latest review for webBikeWorld.com is posted and this time it is of the TCX X-Blend boots. The TCX X-Blend boots combine a classic leather work boot look and feel with CE certified protection. (For more information, be sure to read the wBW report “CE Certified vs. CE Approved“, because their is a difference.)
Most people would never know these are motorcycle boots unless the details such as the shifter cover on the toe boxes or the round ankle protectors were noticed. Add waterproofing to the mix and you have a motorcycle boot that looks old school but has taken lessons from modern riding gear to provide both safety and comfort.

Earlier this year I had a low side crash on my Triumph Sprint. I was making my way around the roundabout (traffic circle) just down the road from my office heading home for the day. As I was completing the circle which I do on a regular basis I noticed I was very low to the ground. It was about this time that I realized I was too low and was about to low side. It felt like it happened very slowly as I thought “well I’m about to slide” and then I was.
I was unhurt in the crash and no one else was involved save for the kind person in the truck behind me who hopped out and helped me pick up the bike. I was able to ride the bike home from there without issue. I was unhurt because I wasn’t going fast and I was wearing all my riding gear. My pants were torn, my jacket only scratched and I thought that was the extent. Once home though I found my new-ish Dianese Fulcrum boots had not fared so well.
